What's your current set up?
Well not exactly nothing.
I use a two channel combo (either a marshall jcm800 4211 combo or a laney LC30) and switch between the clean & overdrive channels. The 4 main sounds would be:
The Clean channel
The Clean channel with the boost on for gritty break up
The overdrive channel
The overdrive channel with the boost on for extra drive and sustain.
Boss TU2 tuner >Marshall Bluesbreaker 2 set to boost > Cry baby > Boss TR2 Tremolo > Marshall regenerator (€30 in the music maker sale) > Boss DD6 digital delay & the spring reverb on the amp.
I was in a band with a guy who used to go through incredible amounts of equipment. Like if you break up the FX thing, overdrive, modulation, delay, wha ect...he would go through almost ever brand in each category looking for the right pedals. Even different turners.
I've haven't heard an overdrive pedal that sounds as good as the drive channel on my JCM800.
That timmy pedal, is it a clear boost?
3 different drive pedals?
I do get the whole stylization of overdrive sounds especially if you doing your own thing, recording ect. The differences are tiny but massively important. One thing is some people don't want to be seen with a big dumb rock amp like a marshall but spend a fortune getting an OD pedal that sounds like a marshall.
